This is devastating news. RIP Nightfight, whose breeding legacy will surely be felt for years to come. I'm glad he already has 3 sons braced to carry on the torch.

That's just awful. I'm so sorry! He was way too young to be taken.
I hope my boy, Fight The Twilight, can do him justice in the breeding shed someday...

A devastating loss for everyone in the game.  Condolences from our farm to yours.  So glad I got my best mare in with him last year.  Hoping this pairing results in a fitting tribute to the great man.
